On December 9, 2009, I clicked the “submit” button on my Peace Corps application. On December 9, 2010, I hosted a farewell party for my Maryland friends. It seems as though I have come full circle in the Peace Corps application process.
Here are some highlights from my visit to Maryland:
1) Rubbing Testudo’s nose and leaving him my Peace Corps pen for good luck.
2) My going away party. Theme: Mustache Bash. It’s a long story.
3) Frisbee Formal.
4) Buying/ decorating/ playing with the Christmas tree.
5) And overall, just being with my college friends again. It’s been an awkward year of transitions and I’ve got another major one coming up. It was refreshing to get back to what feels like normal life for a few days. I LOVE YOU ALL AND WILL MISS YOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW! Please keep in touch, and good luck with all of your own adventures.
